Dear Michael,

This comment strikes me as a philosophy out of touch with historical or 
sociological analysis. The Left/Right distinction is an ideological one 
that has a class content. It may be a conceptual spectrum that is 
inaccurate to classify political positions but to wish it away is as 
silly as to deny the existence of different economic class interests.

Only a philosopher disconnected from history could do that.
